VIP Red Carpet Ready Hair Treatment at Bella Nella Salon
For me, having healthy, strong hair is so important. The healthier the locks, the more bounce and life it will have. My brunching escapades require me to have hair that's on point at all times. For anyone, really - when you're all dressed up for your weekend brunch, it's super obvious when your hair is damaged and in need of a deep conditioning treatment.
I found my new favorite salon in Los Angeles - a tiny gem in the heart of Glendale called Bella Nella Salon that specializes in Kerastase hair treatments. Believe me, it is worth the trip out into the valley! When I heard that they are the only salon in the LA area to offer the "VIP Red Carpet Treatment" I knew I had to check it out. I had never gotten a Kerastase treatment before, but I was told that this would be the one deep conditioning I would need to transform my hair back from its outgrown dullness and be back to camera ready!
When I arrived, I sat right down and started getting my hair washed - it was the beginning of my fabulous Kerastase treatment given to me by the very sweet stylist, Janea! The shampoo and conditioner used was nothing short of top quality:
Gommage Chronolgiste (Scalp Exfoliation)
Bain Volumifique (For Volume)
Concentre Densifique + Booster Densite (For Thickening at the Root)
Concentre Vita Ciment + Booster Radiance (For Damage and Added Shine)
Maskeratine (For Dryness, Damage and Frizz-Free Hair)
While shampooing, Janea really took her time in educating me on so much - from the proper way to shampoo hair to the process of each product being used.
Following my thorough and very relaxing washing session, I went straight to the machine that makes all the magic happen - the K-Mist Machine!
Then they wrapped all my hair up and brought me to the K-mist machine. The K-mist machine is like a facial for your hair and helps to open the cuticle of the hair up so the treatments the stylists applied can penetrate deeply into the hair-shaft for maximum healing.
It was incredibly relaxing. I loved how at the end of the treatment there was a quick rush of cold air from the machine that blew on my hair to lock in the treatment.
Following the K-Mist Machine, my hair got rinsed and I headed to the salon chair to get an specialized hair consultation and trim from Bella, one of the owners.
She carefully analyzed my face shape and educated me on what haircuts are the most flattering. She gave a detailed explanation how the proper haircut for a person goes beyond just their face shape, but body type and proportion plays a major role as well. She actually created a book on beauty, essentially Bella Nella's beauty bible that shows an in-depth analysis of how to specific body types and hair types should be catered to. When you feel beautiful and well on the inside, it will radiate on the outside - how you take care of your hair will be an additional asset!
I ended up getting a trim as I wanted to keep my hair length around the same and it was followed with a styling of gorgeous wrap curls!
My experience at Bella Nella Salon was one that will always stand out for me. The ladies are extensively knowledgable in what they do. I have never been to a salon that has stylists that genuinely take their time into getting to know their clients and making sure they're 100% happy. They don't rush, and it is refreshing! Their passion for haircare, beauty and their clients is very evident through their beautiful work. They really make you feel like home, and it makes the experience that much more enjoyable.
After just one Kerastase treatment, I can honestly say my hair has felt significantly stronger and smoother. I highly recommend the treatment to anyone who needs a deep, nourishing cleanse for their locks. The results really do last, and I couldn't be happier!
Whether you're planning on brunching or on the red carpet, Bella Nella Salon will make sure your hair is in the healthiest and most beautiful state it can be.
